==============================================================================

In the Senate…

Update 5:48pm Eastern. Snowe and Collins cast their yes votes.

Update 5:51pm Eastern. Specter…Aye.

Update 6:04pm Eastern. Senate will wait for Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown to return from his mother’s wake.

White House supplied him plane to whisk him back to cast the 60th vote.

Vote will be open until 10:30pm Eastern

UPDATE: At 10:50pm EST, the final liberal vote was cast by Sen. Brown of Ohio. The ultimate payoff for the vote: a 1st class ride in the private jet of the White House. I have only one question:

Sen. Brown, where shall the tax payers send the bill for that plane ticket? To your personal residence or to your Senate office?

So let it be written in history books that the “American Government Gone Mad Act of 2009” passed, this 13th day of February, Two Thousand and Nine, with a final vote of 60 – 38

Final Senate voting results here.

Please continue to pray for Sen. Kennedy. Due to his illness he was not able to be in attendance for the vote.
